This reciepe was first posted by our friends over at Growing Communities. It looks delicious and fitting for a meal with friends.


  • 100g carrots
  • 100g rolled oats
  • 100g butter
  • 100g wholemeal flour
  • 1 tablespoon baking powder
  • pinch of salt
  • 1 bunch chard
  • 2 tablespoon olive oil
  • 2 onions
  • 2 crushed garlic
  • 2 large eggs
  • parmesan or alternative, to taste
  • 50 ml milk
  • sprig of parsley, finely chopped
  • salt and pepper


Shred the carrots. Mix the carrots, oats and butter.

In a separate bowl, mix the flour, baking powder and salt then add to the carrot mix and combine to form a dough.

Press it into your tin and chill in fridge for 1/2 hour minimum.

Bake in a hot oven, 200C/gas 6 for 15 minutes.

Heat the olive oil in a large pan and saute the onions slowly till they start to caramelise.

Add the garlic and chopped chard stalks, and - a couple of minutes later - the chard leaves. Cook until the chard has wilted.

Put the chard mixture into a bowl and combine with the eggs, milk, parmesan, parsley, salt and pepper.

Pour into the tart crust and bake for a further 20 minutes at 180C.


You'll need a 24cm diameter tart tin.
